This year’s NAIDOC theme focuses on the importance of an Indigenous voice in the decision making of this country.

Voice. Treaty. Truth. were three key elements to the reforms set out in the Uluru Statement from the Heart. These reforms represent the unified position of First Nations Australians and are the basis for this years NAIDOC celebrations.

2019 is also being celebrated as the United Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages, it’s time for our knowledge to be heard through our voice.

Please come along, and take some time out to acknowledge and reflect on the important issues raised by this year’s theme.
